Perfect for 20 pound turkeys!
on December 15, 2017
I love this "little" pot. "Little" is relative though because I had a huge pot that took 5 gallons of oil to fry a turkey and the whole process was a mess. This is perfect, 3 gallons of oil (which is the size most commonly sold in my area), 20 pound turkey, and in less than 3 hours I have perfect juicy turkey. (about 3 hours is the oil heat time and cook time combined depending on turkey size).
Size: 16 inches to the rim and 13.5 inches diameter
Tall (necessary for bubbling oil - I love this feature)
Big (I fit a 22 pound turkey. Any bigger is a fire hazard because the sides of the turkey will touch the sides of the pot and could cause the oil to overflow. But it could potentially fit a 25 pound if you live dangerously).
Max fill line on the side of the pot (3 gallons of oil is barely an inch below this line - convenient for gauging how much oil you need)
Cons: None so far with 3 uses
